Pause

Two nights ago, we experienced one of the unfortunate possibilities that come along with caring for animals. It was after school time, and I was determined to get one of my sewing projects completed before dinner. Ray was having free time in another room, watching YouTube videos. As I was wrapping up my project, I…

Solitude Amidst the Chaos

In light of recent events, or the mystery of said events rather, I’ve been fumbling for the right words to share. It’s no secret that the (talk of the) coronavirus has infiltrated our every connection with the outside world. Schools, churches, restaurants, shops, and events all shut down or cancelled until further notice. The thought…

Our Week Ahead 9/2-9/8

Hey friends! I hope the last two weeks have treated you well. We have been busy around the Lane household, but then again, when is it not?! We’ve just finished up our fifth week of school. Crazy, right? Time flies when you’re having fun, and we have been having a lot of fun! In school…

Our Week Ahead 8/19-8/23

Hey Friends! Here we are again, another week has gone by! I hate that I missed a whole week of posts with y’all due to a nasty migraine. I’m due for a new prescription when it comes to my glasses, the pressure in our area has been funky lately, and I’ve been void of caffeine…

My Thoughts on Sexual Education

My do the years fly by from birth to adolescence. There are so many milestones tucked into the first 10 years of a child’s life. Baby’s first words, first tooth, and first steps to learning to ride a bike, going to school, and… the beginning stages of puberty. The early years quickly turn into the…

No More Grocery Shopping

There are typically two kinds of people when it comes to grocery shopping: those who love it and those who loathe it. It didn’t used to bother me, until I became an avid label reader, more health and budget conscious and.. let’s be honest, a parent. All of these things combined have squashed any love…

Our Week Ahead 8/5-8/11

Wow.. It’s August, folks! Can you believe how quickly this year is flying by? I’ve always heard that the older you get, the quicker the time goes. I’ve also always heard that time flies when you’re having fun.. I like the sound of that one better! August is here, which means the summer is coming…

Veggie Pasta Recipe

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been striving to find more ways to incorporate more veggies into our household. (All the mommas feel me on this) I’ve always been a veggie head. I’ve loved every vegetable there ever was since childhood. It was never a problem for my mom to get me to eat…

Happy Hummingbirds

One of my most favorite things about my back porch is the Mimosa tree that sits right off its corner. It’s so lovely all year around. In the Spring, it produces bright pink flower tufts, much like the Truffulas found in Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. In the Summer it hangs heavy with pods similar to…
